Downtown Discovery Days, formerly known as Dollar Days in Downtown Baltimore 2023 are January 2-13, 2023.

What are Downtown Discovery Days?

They are the days where participating Downtown Baltimore museums offer admission reduced price or for free.

As of this posting, there are a number of places participating.

We went to the Maryland Science Center with friends for dollar days years ago, and had a really great time! Yes, it was was crowded, but it was neat to see so many families there. Our kids got to do the activities they wanted to do, any everyone was patient and seemed to be enjoying themselves.

The participating museums from the Downtown Partnership of Baltimore’s website and the times/days they are at a reduced or free rate (some are only one day, so please make plans accordingly!):
